So now you've got your back to school wardrobe of dresses, bags, outerwear, and denim all for very reasonable prices, but let's be honest, where would we be without a good pair of shoes? Me, I would be a goner. Total shoe-fiend right here. In the order of getting dressed in the morning, shoes go on last, and we all know the best is saved for last.

Sadly, my appetite for shoes is bigger than the size of my wallet, but that doesn't mean I am forced to wallow in total misery, it just means I have to be more careful about what I pick and choose (and maybe wait for a sale or two!). But screw waiting: right here, right now, I introduce to you a whole bounty of babely under-$50 shoes, ripe for the picking.
